Sun.Star Pampanga - - REAL ES­TATE! -

Un­der Repub­lic Act 9400, An Act Amend­ing Repub­lic Act 7227 oth­er­wise known as the Bases Con­ver­sion and De­vel­op­ment Act of 1992, a five per­cent tax on gross in­come earned shall be paid by all reg­is­tered busi­ness en­ter­prises within Clark Freeport Zone and shall be di­rectly re­mit­ted to the na­tional gov­ern­ment (three per­cent) and trea­surer's of­fice of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity or city where they are lo­cated.

Garbo said the city gov­ern­ment sur­passed its col­lec­tion tar­get of P640 mil­lion last year.

"This is the first time po that the city sur­passed its in­come [from Clark lo­ca­tors] be­cause our tar­get in­come was only P640 mil­lion but we col­lected al­most P650 mil­lion," he said.

The city mayor also thanked other na­tional gov­ern­ment agen­cies which as­sisted the lo­cal gov­ern­ment in terms of pro­gram im­ple­men­ta­tion.

He also thanked the city coun­cil headed by ViceMayor Chris­tian Halili for sup­port­ing the pro­grams in terms of fund­ing and ap­proval of sup­port or­di­nances and res­o­lu­tions.

"With­out them (coun­cilors), I will not be able to do all these things be­cause the power of the ex­ec­u­tive al­ways comes from the Sang­gu­ni­ang Pan­lung­sod," Garbo said.

“The peo­ple now feel their lo­cal gov­ern­ment and they are ben­e­fit­ting from the ef­fi­cient de­liv­ery of ba­sis ser­vices like free health care and medicines,” he added.
